One of the major advantages of getting the Core2Duo is video encoding. Nero Digital is one of the most well known Digital formats, offering both ASP and AVC encoders.
For our tests, we used the latest version of Nero Recode v184.108.40.206, as packaged with Nero Reloaded v220.127.116.11. As a source, we used a VOB file, of 5 minutes duration. We encoded in both modes (ASP, AVC) with exactly the same preferences (same bitrate and dual pass). The encoding time displayed below, is what Nero Recode reported. As you can expect, the less time that was taken, the better. All results are displayed in seconds.
All motherboards had exactly the same performance with ASP encoding. Passing to the more CPU/RAM intensive benchmark, the Asus P5B Deluxe motherboard was clearly faster.
CINEBENCH is the free benchmarking tool for Windows and Mac OS based on the powerful 3D software CINEMA 4D. Consequently, the results of tests conducted using CINEBENCH 9.5 carry significant weight when analyzing a computer’s performance in everyday use.
Especially a system’s CPU and the OpenGL capabilities of its graphics card are put through their paces (even multiprocessor systems with up to 16 dedicated CPUs or processor cores). During the testing procedure, all relevant data is ascertained with which the performance of different computers can subsequently be compared, regardless of operating system. All tests were done with the latest available build (R9.5), and the sum of each sub-test is displayed at the following chart..
The CineBench total score has the Foxconn ahead.
SuperPI has become a utility to benchmark modern systems. In August 1995, the calculation of pi up to 4,294,960,000 decimal digits was succeeded by using a supercomputer at the University of Tokyo. The program was written by D.Takahashi and he collaborated with Dr. Y.Kanada at the computer center, the University of Tokyo. This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environment such as Windows NT and Windows 95 and called Super PI.
The software offers up to 32M calculations of PI numbers, for all CPUs we tested up to 8M calculations and sum them up for a total score.
Due to better memory handling, the Asus P5B Deluxe had the lowest overall SuperPI calculation time:
